Flagship 2: Sustainable Economy
The research for this flagship is performed by the team of the Centre for Sustainable Entrepreneurship (www.rug.nl/cf/cse). In our Centre, academic scholars collaborate with business to develop and implement sustainable entrepreneurship to enable a social, environmental, and value-creating circular economy. Joint teams of academic scholars and business leaders disentangle the complexity of sustainable entrepreneurship dedicated to foster a circular economy. The research shows how business can benefit from sustainability by transforming their product configurations, supply chains and their value propositions to their customers. The research defines and solves a wide range of business challenges and the transformation to a circular economy including:
- how can we visualise and measure the sustainability of an organization?
- what are the most important instruments to make organisations more sustainable and to obtain a circular economy?
- what are the key principles in changing existing business models into circular ones?
- how can managers and policy makers use multiple and coherent instrument in one business model for sustainable enterprises and a circular economy?
The Centre self is a sustainable organisation and therefore achieves multi-value performance balancing the interests of people, planet, profits and society.
